About Babette's Feast
"Babette's Feast", is "a glorious production fit for the new millennium!" - Portland Press Herald
Based on Isak Dinesen's short story made famous by the 1987 Academy Award-winning film, this new stage adaptation of "Babette's Feast" tells the story of a French refugee who finds asylum in a pious Norwegian village. With boundless generosity, she throws a lavish feast that becomes an agent of transformative grace that heals the fractured community. The production, directed by acclaimed experimental theatre director Karin Coonrod, re-imagines the story you thought you knew. It is a bundle of exciting contradictions: stark and lush, stunning and austere, mysterious and comic.
